I guess I was expecting the upcoming DARK SHADOWS movie to be a more serious effort, but after watching the new trailer, I realize Burton probably made the right decision in going for humor. I too watched the original series live during the 60s and 70s, but if you think about it, most remakes or revivals don't work unless they go in a different direction. Still, while the DS film looks like a fun romp, here's a pretty accurate take on the "style rut" Burton's fallen into:

I just watched it and I too watched the series. The retro campy look look has a certain charm but I propbably will not see it.

I do believe that Tim Burton likely "jumped the shark" a long time ago, but I still wouldn't be able to stay awake watching the original DS shows again. BIG FISH was by far his best film, and he's been on a downhill slide ever since.

Well, I got an email from one of my websites to be in a film called, Meczhak's Quest. The director (Richard Riffel)
wants to be one of the kings. Thestory is that a wedding party is going to an inn (medievel times) and end being transported into the future. The group must fulfill a quest, get back to their original time, and go to the wedding.
I apllied for it two weeks ago and got an answer tonight. No audition. He just say my head shot, like what he saw (with some film clips as well) and said, please be a part of my film.

Just got off the phone with him and his project. It will take place sometime in the fall. He is in the midst of getting cast and crew together.
